Black Leopards boss explains why Kerr left

David Thidiela has explained why Dylan Kerr left Black Leopards after a single season in South Africa.

Kerr arrived in the Absa Premiership mid last season to rescue a trouble-Black Leopards from relegation. The former Gor Mahia man did in fact deliver when he saved the club on the final day of the season with a 1-0 win over Cape Town City.

But he soon handed in a shock resignation…

Club boss Thidiela has now come out to reveal why Kerr headed for the exit.

"He said he was leaving, he said he is not getting enough support from the management," Thidiela told Kick Off.

"I don't know [what support is he talking about]. You see when he left everything was good, we spoke very well as an employer and an employee, and even decided when are we coming back for pre-season... but once he got home he decided to write a letter saying no, he no longer wanted to come back.”


Gone after one season in SA.

"So you will never know. So I didn't have time to ask him where did we go wrong as a club. When he left, he left as a happy man. When he left everything was well, but once he got home instead of writing a letter saying I had a safe trip... after two weeks he writes a letter saying he's no longer coming back, he doesn't want to work with us anymore because he is not getting enough support... and that's a vague statement. He didn't explain.”

"We will get a new coach, there are a lot of people looking for work. We've got a lot of CVs from top coaches. You know from Europe alone there are up to 25 applications... I just don't know why. People have applied yoh!"
